Sam Gliksman was born in Australia. As a child, the closest he ever came to technology was playing with a yo-yo that lit up at night. After college Sam made aliyah and took his love of football, cricket and vegemite to Israel.

The arrival of the personal computer in the 1980’s promised to radically alter the entire landscape of our lives. Seeing change on the horizon, Sam went back to college to do a Masters in Educational Technology at Tel Aviv University where he also worked for a few years. Technology became his passion. Sam arrived in the USA in the late 1980’s and quickly got caught up in the emerging technology industry. He started Streetwise Software (www.swsoftware.com), a software development and publishing company that climbed into the top 100 software publishing companies in the USA within a few years. Five years ago Sam returned to his educational technology roots and became the Director of Educational Technology at New Community Jewish High School.

Today Sam splits his time between working as a director at NCJHS and consulting in the fields of website development, general IT and educational technology. He can be contacted at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) . If you’re lucky you may even get a vegemite sandwich.
